Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ted and Kat watched their cousin Salim board the London Eye. But after half an hour it landed and everyone trooped off — except Salim. Where could he have gone? How on earth could he have disappeared into thin air? Ted and his older sister, Kat, become sleuthing partners, since the police are having no luck. Despite their prickly relationship, they overcome their differences to follow a trail of clues across London in a desperate bid to find their cousin. And ultimately it comes down to Ted, whose brain works in its own very unique way, to find the key to the mystery. This is an unput-downable spine-tingling thriller — a race against time.

Review:

"This is a well-constructed puzzle, and mystery lovers will delight in connecting the clues." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Everything rings true here, the family relationships, the quirky connections of Ted's mental circuitry, and, perhaps most surprisingly, the mystery." Booklist

Sarah Bancroft, January 22, 2010 (view all comments by Sarah Bancroft)
A page-turner as much for adults as for young people. The unique voice of Ted, the young narrator for whom emotions are such a puzzle, is fascinating as it reminds us that we are not so very different from those around us to whom we have given labels. This is a mystery that unfolds with feeling and insight. The book is expertly paced with lively character development. I particularly enjoyed the growth of understanding between Kat (Ted's older sister) and Ted which occurs throughout the story. Outstanding read and a genuine tribute to an extremely talented author. Would be an excellent choice for a late-elementary/middle-school book group.
